We’re used to seeing Taylor Swift in some of the most glamorous locations around the world.

A kebab shop in London? Not so much.

The 27-year-old pop singer was spotted filming her new music video in Kentish Delight, a kebab shop in Kentish Town over the weekend.

Tay Tay reportedly chose the location because it’s one of the places she’s visited in the capital with her British boyfriend Joe Alwyn.

Yes, somehow Taylor’s been going on expeditions to order extra large doners with lashings of garlic mayo without anyone noticing.

A source told The Sun: ‘The video shows Taylor on a night out. All of the locations are places she has been to with Joe.

‘She has spent months quietly going under the radar in London this year and has been out a lot more than anybody realises.

‘It is quite telling that she has been hanging out in these regular and unexpected places […] She wants to show people she is just a normal girl.’

Swift was also seen shooting scenes on the Millennium Bridge, on the night bus around Piccadilly and Trafalgar Square and at Alwyn’s local pub for the video.

The top secret shoot took place between 9pm and 6am, with the source claiming everyone on set was asked to hand over their mobiles to prevent the track from leaking.

Alwyn, 26, is an actor who is best known for starring in Ang Lee’s film Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.

Swift’s sixth album, Reputation, will be released next month.
